Aladdin’s Cave

Lots of people come into our shop and say it’s something of an Aladdin’s Cave. And it really is! I first came into the shop in November last year and at least once a week I say “I didn’t know we sold that!” to Rachael. If you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to stay for a herbal tea when you visit the shop, have a browse on our website to find almost our full range of products online. If you’re doing your Christmas shopping, making the conscious decision to shop small this year will really help a lot of small businesses. As everyone knows, it hasn’t been an easy couple of years for a lot of us. Zero One may look tiny on the outside but it’s absolutely something of a Tardis in here! Especially when we rearrange the furniture; it always seems to grow a few feet when we have a shuffle around and a re-jig. 

We have gifts-galore at Zero One. Something for everyone. Our Safety Razor Kits have been flying out in the lead up for Christmas. A great gift for anyone who shaves, in the box is a Friendly Soap handmade shaving bar, a set of safety razors and a Nurtured Me edition double-edged weighted razor that will last a lifetime if you keep it dry and take care of it. Safety razor blades are widely available and very cheap in comparison to plastic alternatives. Lots of people buy the razors for the nostalgia of using what they used to use but these are fantastic modern upgrades and definitely the future. 


The Friendly soap shaving bar is handmade with Castor Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Kaolin Clay, Soy Wax, Aloe Vera and scented with Lavender and Orange essential oils. We chose this shaving bar to add to the shaving kit because Friendly soaps are handmade in the UK, in Hebden Bridge actually. They contain no harmful preservatives, palm oil, SLS or parabens and are vegan and cruelty free. To top it all off, their packaging is made from 100% recycled materials and is recyclable! The soap lathers well between your hands too, so no need for a shaving brush! We all know how important it is to switch to plastic-free alternatives but if there’s someone in your life that is stubbornly refusing to make the switch, the luxurious Razor Kit is a great place to get them started.


All year round, we will put together a personalised hamper or gift box for anyone in store. At Christmas, though, we’re going the extra mile with ready-made hampers. Of course there’s the Nurtured Me Indulgence Box with bath salts, face mask, konjac and much more for anyone in your life you think deserves some relaxing alone time.


We’ve got Christmas Boxes in store that are selling fast, so come and visit and get your goodies soon instead of leaving it until Christmas Eve! Fill your hamper will all kinds of plastic free swaps like our Qwetch patterned insulated bottles, amber glass bottles of lotion, handmade local art or a paper bag of wasabi peas!

We really do have something for everyone at Zero One.


We hope to see you soon,
